Technicolor Universal Media Services

Profile:

Technicolor Universal Media Services (TUMS) was a CD and DVD manufacturing plant located in Pinckneyville, IL, USA, active from 2002-07. The company was established in 2002 after Thomson acquired and renamed Matsushita Universal Media Services. The plant ceased production in March 2007 in an effort to centralise North American manufacturing operations in Guadalajara, Mexico (see Technicolor, Guadalajara, Mexico).

2002-04 disc matrix ID

From 2002-04, TUMS continued the same matrix numbering scheme and layout as Matsushita Universal Media Services had, including a unique ten-digit matrix number which can be entered in LCCN. Please note that the release catalogue number is also present in the matrix, and also often ten digits, so it is important to compare the digits in each ten-digit string with the release catalogue number and barcode to ensure that the proper TUMS-associated matrix number is entered into LCCN:

Matrix: [release catalogue number] [ten-digit matrix number] MFG BY TECHNICOLOR UNIVERSAL MEDIA SERVICES
Mastering SID codes: IFPI L771, IFPI L772
Mould SID codes: IFPI 24**, IFPI 2A**

Example: Various - More Music From 8 Mile
Matrix / Runout: 0044509792 1050912950 MFG BY TECHNICOLOR UNIVERSAL MEDIA SERVICES
0044509792 = release catalogue number shown in disc matrix
1050912950 = TUMS' ten-digit matrix number for entry in LCCN

Please enter in LCCN as:
Manufactured By – Technicolor Universal Media Services – xxxxxxxxxx

Sometimes there will be no "MFG BY..." in the matrix, but Technicolor Universal Media Services may still be credited if the item was released in 2002-04. Since the same matrix pattern and SID codes were used by Matsushita Universal Media Services, please do not credit TUMS on releases issued before 2002 or where the release date is uncertain.

Please enter in LCCN as:
Glass Mastered At – Technicolor Universal Media Services – xxxxxxxxxx

Example: Loretta Lynn - Van Lear Rose
Matrix / Runout: B000251302 9311717069 IFPI L772 ['UNIVERSAL' logo]
Glass Mastered At – Technicolor Universal Media Services – 9311717069

2004-07 disc matrix ID

From 2004 onward the name Technicolor Universal Media Services was no longer shown in the disc matrix, but the company can be identified by the common matrix pattern in the presence of associated SID codes:

Matrix: [Universal logo] ** ([release catalogue number]SP) LYYLNNNNL
Mastering SID codes: IFPI L771, IFPI L772
Mould SID codes: IFPI 24**, IFPI 2A**

LYYLNNNNL is a unqiue number assigned by TUMS, where L = letter, N = number, and YY = the year in which the glass master was manufactured.

Examples:
C04J0432C = The Temptations - 1990
C05C0937D = Johnny Pate - Shaft In Africa
C06B0209A = Various - Now That's What I Call Music! 21

Please enter in LCCN as:
Glass Mastered At – Technicolor Universal Media Services - LYYLNNNNL
